Sami to hold solo ex­hi­bi­tion

Sunday Trust - - ART & IDEAS - By Isaac Ade­biyi

Nige­rian cre­ative artist, and vis­ual de­signer, Haf­sat Sani Sami, is set to hold a solo ex­hi­bi­tion ‘Imag­in­ing A Beau­ti­ful Life’ be­gin­ning to­day at the Thought Pyra­mid Art Cen­tre, Abuja.

Sami who is also the CEO and the cre­ative di­rec­tor of Kw­evve Tex­tiles is fea­tur­ing works which jour­ney through life’s var­i­ous chap­ters, a doc­u­men­ta­tion of the bat­tles between self and so­ci­ety, light and dark, pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive, and the con­scious ef­fort to con­stantly cre­ate a bet­ter life ir­re­spec­tive of cur­rent predica­ments

Ac­cord­ing to the artist, there is no doubt cre­ative imag­i­na­tion is the only state of mind that is free from lim­i­ta­tions and de­void of im­pos­si­bil­i­ties.

She said in a state­ment that, “The mind is also a strong de­sire through which power can only be har­nessed through imag­i­na­tion and the sheer will bring those thoughts to life.”

The state­ment said, “The theme of the ex­hi­bi­tion ‘Imag­inin­ing a beau­ti­ful life’ gives the in­sight of life en­tirely, as it deals with var­i­ous artists in nu­mer­ous blows, killing their be­liefs through self, thereby im­pris­on­ing their cre­ative minds in the con­fine­ments of neg­a­tiv­ity and doubt, which births a long line of neg­a­tive psy­cho­log­i­cal im­pact.”
